SYFY and Universal Cable Productions (UCP) have released the first trailer for the upcoming season of Channel Zero. This third installment of Channel Zero will be titled Butcher's Block and will air in early 2018. Creator Nick Antosca will return as executive producer, showrunner and writer for the third installment alongside executive producer Max Landis with UCP as the studio. Arkasha Stevenson will direct. The second installment of the horror anthology series, Channel Zero: No End House, wrapped up its run back in late October.
Inspired by Kerry Hammond's "Search and Rescue Woods" Creepypasta tale, Channel Zero: Butcher's Block tells the story of a young woman named Alice (Olivia Luccardi, It Follows) who moves to a new city and learns about a series of disappearances that may be connected to a baffling rumor about mysterious staircases in the city's worst neighborhoods. With help from her sister, they discover that something is preying on the city's residents.
Olivia Luccardi (It Follows) stars as Alice Woods, an idealistic young woman who devotes her life to helping the less fortunate, including her schizophrenic sister. But behind a facade of composure, Alice's struggles with family, money and her own personal health are threatening to push her over the edge. Holland Roden (Teen Wolf) plays Zoe Woods, Alice's older sister, a sharp, tough young woman whose struggles with mental illness have worn her down over the years. She hates that her younger sister has to take care of her and she'd give anything to go back to the way things used to be.
Rutger Hauer (Blade Runner) portrays Joseph Peach, a 1950s meatpacking magnate who grew increasingly reclusive and then disappeared after his beloved daughters were murdered. Brandon Scott (Wreck-It Ralph) plays Officer Luke Vanczyk, a young but already jaded cop, living in the shadow of his father, the Chief of Police. Luke's world-weary exterior hides a fierce commitment to justice, and a deep love for his troubled community. Krisha Fairchild (Krisha) plays Louise Lispector, a retired journalist who has lived in Garrett, Michigan her whole life. Now she spends her days doing taxidermy and working on her personal project: A book about a pattern of disappearances in the city's worst neighborhood. But when she rents out part of her house to Alice and Zoe Woods, she finds herself in danger from the people behind the disappearances.
